LibriVox recording of The Quiet Flame, by Eva K. Betz. Read by Maria Therese.
“You will never be a leper nor will any Sister of our Order.”
The amazing promise was made by Mother Marianne of Molokai, the “Quiet Flame” of the this title who, as a Sister of St. Francis , spent 30 years on that island helping lepers during and after the time of Father Damien.
Mother was speaking to a young nun, and she spoke the truth. Not one of the Sisters ever did contract the disease, a notable fact considering the tender care they fostered on the lepers.
This story of this good nun, was written by the author of a number of Catholic biographies and fiction books for children. (Summary from original jacket and Maria Therese)
